Bill Burr is the worst kind of white person.

Post by Rocinante on 2018-01-03, 11:45

His stupid jokes represent the callous attitude of a lot of white men that just because that the fact that they have to have jobs means white privilege doesn't exist. The cold dismissal of the idea that your skin color gives you an advantage in certain situations as moronic because you have struggles too is dangerous, and lazy thinkers eat that shit up. I think he's mad because he's not funny.

Fuck that dude.

The reason I'm thinking about this is because somebody posted one of his shitty stand-ups.

Bill Burr is pretty hit or miss. I've heard some of his stuff and it's hysterical. Other bits he completely misses the mark.

Also, I think he's one of those comedians you have to listen to a few times to pick up on his style. I'd give him another chance.

He could be funny as fuck but as long as he dismisses white privilege outright, he's an asshole. No thanks.

That's part of his shtick, he loves to piss people off.

He's a hard working dude though. He's worked at comedy forever and used to tour with the Def Jam comedy tour. He's been on the Chapelle show, was friends with Charlie Murphy and has an African American wife. Yes, he does and says some horrible shit in his bits. Some of his routines on women are way too far out for me but he has some stuff that is hysterical. He does a lot of routines about sports, drunk driving, drinking, music and other topics that aren't as polarizing.

I don't know. Maybe he's so enlightened he's over my head. It's not like he avoids the topic of racism at all. He calls Boston a racist Mecca. Which it is. but white privilege is more subtle than overt racism and working class whites don't want to hear that shit because "I work my ass off man, I ain't got no privilege!" and that attitude is so counterproductive to meaningful societal change and he expresses that exact thought process.

He has a black following believe it or not. His appeal is kind of on the level of the old Archie Bunker show which also had a sizeable black audience back in the day. I understand though if he's not your cup of tea. It took a while for me to appreciate some of his stuff and he's definitely got me laughing at points. Like I said some of his stuff makes me cringe.

Bill Burr is better than you, Roc. He's better than steve too, but that goes without saying.

Dumb thread.

Bill Burr is a fucking moron.

He is one of those "no politics in sports" guys, but is too dumb to see the irony. He needs to abide by his own logic. Stick to telling jokes and leave the social commentary to people who are qualified to do so.

Bill Burr is a fucking moron.

Is he a "no politics in sports" guy? I didn't know that. That is dumb, if true.

Good choice. They seem like an annoying bunch of turds.
